Inca One Gold Reports Increase in Supply in April
VANCOUVER, BC – May 30, 2023 – INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSXV:INCA) (OTCQB:INCAF) (Frankfurt:SU92) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) a gold producer operating two mineral processing facilities in Peru, (the “Plants”) reports consolidated sales (unaudited) for April 2023 and comparative month over month (“MoM”) operational results.
Deliveries to Inca One Plants increased by 31% as transportation of gold feedstock picked up again as management previously referenced. This was a result of transport corridors re-opening following previous social unrest in some areas of the country and the end of the annual rainy season.
Milling activity also increased slightly as Inca One operated at 121 tonnes per day (“TPD”) of throughput. Gold production in April also decreased by 6% reaching 1,499 ounces for the month.
|Consolidated operations||April 2023||March 2023||MoM change|
|Sales (US$)||1.4 M||3.3 M||-58%|
Sales revenue in April reached US$1.4 million, from the sale of 675 ounces of gold, a 59% decrease over the prior month of March 2023. The decrease, as compared to the prior month of March, was due to the timing of exports which caused a lower volume of ounces sold, despite a higher gold price.
With a return to normal in-country transportation, ore supply to Inca One Plants continued to increase in the early days of May and the Company’s outlook on future growth in raw material supply for processing remains positive.
